  1. Elbridge Gerry says:

    The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that federal courts are powerless to hear challenges to partisan gerrymandering, the practice in which the party that controls the state legislature draws voting maps to help elect its candidates. The vote was 5 to 4, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority. In a momentous decision, the court closed the door on such claims. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/27/us/politics/supreme-court-gerrymandering.html
